Linguistic processing in Cypriot Greek children with language developmental disorders (number: 1/102)

This project aims to investigate the perceptual processing of phonological, grammatical, and semantic structures in Cypriot Greek-speaking children with language developmental disorders (DLD), providing understanding of how language acquisition mechanisms work in children with DLD. The language intervention services can be provided by clinicians based on the evidence revealed by scientific research (Evidence Based Practice) and focusing on the specific impaired language skills.

To συγκεκριμένο πρότζεκτ στοχεύει στη διερεύνηση της αντιληπτικής επεξεργασίας φωνολογικών, γραμματικών και σημασιολογικών δομών από παιδιά-ομιλητές της Κυπριακής Ελληνικής με διαταραχές γλωσσικής ανάπτυξης (ΔΓΑ), βοηθώντας στην κατανόηση του πώς δουλεύουν οι μηχανισμοί γλωσσικής κατάκτησης σε παιδιά με ΔΓΑ. Οι υπηρεσίες γλωσσικής παρέμβασης μπορούν να παρασχεθούν από κλινικούς βασιζόμενες στα αποτελέσματα της επιστημονικής έρευνας (Τεκμηριωμένη Πρακτική) και εστιάζοντας σε συγκεκριμένες προβληματικές γλωσσικές ικανότητες.
